It’s spending the evening perched under an endless blanket of Milky Way stars, and enjoying an award-winning Aussie barbecue of prawns, meats and vegetables, as you sink into the greatness of panoramic Uluṟu. It’s forming connections with the people you meet. From the warm-hearted Aboriginal people whose Dreamtime storytelling remind you that the Outback is nothing short of magical, to the electricity of the centuries old singing and dancing traditions of New Zealand’s Māori heritage. It’s feeling like a grain of sand in the universe as you trail blaze across picturesque landscapes, without a soul in sight, just an array of exotic wildlife from kangaroos, saltwater crocodiles, koalas, the kiwi bird, and the white-breasted sea eagle. It’s the freedom of snorkeling among the colorful hues of fish and turtles in the Great Barrier Reef, bathing in the beauty of the world’s largest coral reef system. It’s hard to describe these two great Southern lands in just a few words. Let us connect you to those ‘pinch-me’ moments. Join us to discover the real thing, and live The Good Life.

In these circumstances, additional rest breaks will be incorporated into the itinerary. Hotel Accommodation Prices are per person, based on two persons sharing with private bath or shower. Triple rooms may be available on selected vacations in limited numbers. Triple occupancy is based on three guests sharing one room with two beds. Triple occupancy may not be comfortable for three adults sharing. Rollaway/sofa beds may be used as a third bed in the same room.Rollaway beds are not included in the triple prices. Every effort has been made to reserve two-bed rooms; however, on some occasions, rooms with one double bed may be the only choice available. These rooms will be allocated to single travelers and couples first; other rooms may feature a single bed and rollaway bed, murphy bed or sleeper sofa. A limited number of double rooms are available with our Shared Rooming service. Trafalgar shall not be responsible or liable for any claims or issues arising out of the shared rooming. Special room requests (adjacent, connecting or lower-floor rooms, as examples) must be made at time of booking. Special room requests are not guaranteed and are based on availability at time of check-in. Many hotels are 100% smoke-free, including all guest rooms, restaurants, lounges, meeting rooms and public spaces. Smoking in a non-smoking room may result in a fine. Accommodations outside of the USA may not be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and may not have wheelchair accessibility.

$75 plus airline charges

Substitute hotels may be used sometimes. We try to use hotels of similar standard. Hotel Frequent Traveler program points are not earned with hotels on Trafalgar vacations. Note hotel room sizes, standards, facilities and services provided may vary from country to country and region to region and are often local in style. Free WiFi Internet Service Complimentary WiFi service is available in many Trafalgar hotel guestrooms and/or the public areas of most hotels. In most countries complimentary WiFi is also provided on-board the motorcoaches except in remote locations. The WiFi on the motorcoaches uses the cellular phone network and as a result the connection will be slower than standard broadband and at times may not be available. Audio and Video streaming is not available using motorcoach WiFi. Please note that it is not available on train trips, or when the main Trafalgar motorcoach is not being used, such as on transfer motorcoaches and other local services. For further information on which countries WiFi is offered in as well as daily data allowances please refer to the Trafalgar website trafalgar.com/wifi.

Please refer to the individual guided vacation. Itinerary extensions are operated on a locally hosted basis using English-speaking Local Host services. Meals Meals are included as detailed on itineraries. Sightseeing Experiences, entrance fees and an Englishspeaking Local Specialist (when required) are included as detailed in the itinerary pages. Transfers Between airports, hotels, railway stations and piers are included as indicated on each guided vacation itinerary. There will be no refund for missed or unused transfers.

Failure to do so may result in missing these services and no refund shall be due for missed arrival transfers resulting from missing or outdated flight information. Porterage Luggage handling of one suitcase per person, at each guided vacation hotel, is included in the price.

to travel. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Alcoholic beverages will not be served to guests under the legal age for alcohol consumption in the country being visited. Minors under age 18 traveling to certain foreign countries must be accompanied by both parents or have a notarized letter of consent signed by the parent(s) not traveling. Trafalgar is not responsible for any losses if you fail to have appropriate documentation. If the other parent is deceased or the child has only one legal parent, a notarized statement must be obtained as proof. Trafalgar seeks to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all guests. Trafalgar welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities. Please note the following: - Guests must advise Trafalgar, at time of booking, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. Trafalgar will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided. - Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel. - Trafalgar may impose safety requirements. Trafalgar may exclude an individual from participating in a guided vacation or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a threat to the health or safety of others. This decision, made solely by Trafalgar, to exclude an individual will be based on an individualized assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. No refunds will be given if the decision is made to exclude a guest. - Trafalgar does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A traveler who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should strongly consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other travelers, Travel Directors and Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purposes. - Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided vacations. - Trafalgar does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. Trafalgar is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on vacation, or for the quality of the care or services received. Medical care in other countries is not always comparable to care that you may receive in your local area. You are encouraged to purchase medical insurance that will cover you while on vacation. Your regular health insurance benefits may not apply abroad. - In purchasing your vacation, you attest that you are physically fit for it. If you have concerns please request additional details about your vacation from your Travel Agent or Trafalgar. - Some guided vacations include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and/or locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the guided vacation, Trafalgar may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which Trafalgar does not control. Accommodations on international guided vacations may differ from those in the United States. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests traveling on international guided vacations. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. These are not part of the vacation package provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing of the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability: we suggest that you speak with your medical provider if you have questions about your abilities. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake. Trafalgar may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Trafalgar’s terms and conditions. If this occurs, you are responsible for the cost of travel back to your hometown and Trafalgar shall not be liable for your losses and no refund shall be provided. Behavior We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behavior from our guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the vacation of guests who assault our Company Representatives or who are abusive or aggressive. When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behavior, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property.

Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodations and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodations in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodations provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. Trafalgar is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided vacation or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold Trafalgar or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. Young Traveler Discount The Young Traveler must be under age 16 on the departure date to be eligible for the discount, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a double or triple room. Only one Young Traveler discount per room is permitted. The discount cannot be combined with our Group, Triple and Past Guest Discounts. Please see ‘Ways to Save’ for details. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar strives to improve guided vacation itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; hotels may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On guided vacations which include cruises, the ship may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions. We will try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation. Trafalgar’s ‘Be My Guest’ experiences are unique and take place in singular locations. In the unlikely event that our local hosts are unable to welcome Trafalgar guests, Trafalgar will attempt to find an alternate experience or a highlight meal will be provided in place of the ‘Be My Guest’ experience. Holidays & Changes During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by Trafalgar seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Holidays, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled regional meals, sightseeing or other activities. If you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date. Extended stays If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your guided vacation, your stay will be at your sole expense. Please see the ‘Extend your Vacation’ section for a list of pre- and post-guided vacation accommodations. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted. If your extra night accommodations are not the hotel where your guided vacation begins or ends, you will be responsible for your transfer arrangements at your own expense. For your comfort Trafalgar operates a daily seat rotation system and enforces a strict no smoking (including e-cigarettes) and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on traveling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free. Guided Vacation Cancellation Trafalgar reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any guided vacation departure in any circumstances, including in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. If cancellation is made by Trafalgar any time prior to the departure date of the guided vacation except when you failed to pay the final balance on time, Trafalgar will either refund the amount received for the guided vacation booking, or offer a comparable vacation if available. Trafalgar will refund any difference in price if the alternative is of a lower price however, the guest will be responsible for additional costs if the alternative is priced higher. Trafalgar is not responsible for other travel arrangements affected due to our cancellations and is not liable for any cancellation penalties incurred on other travel arrangements including air tickets.

Please quote your booking reference number and all relevant information.

Guests who purchase from within California Transactions entered into with Trafalgar are covered by the California Travel Consumer Restitution Fund (TCRF) if the guest is located in California at the time of payment.

The maximum amount which may be paid by the TCRF to any one guest is the total amount paid on behalf of the guest to the seller of travel, not to exceed $15,000. A claim must be submitted to the TCRF within 12 months after the scheduled completion date of the travel. A claim must include sufficient documentation to prove your claim and a $35 processing fee.
